Josie Platt: Gritty Image Photography
Wednesday, February 4, 7:00PM
Iconic Cleveland Josie Platt, of Gritty Image Photography, has lived most of her life in Cleveland, Ohio. Having had short stints in Cincinnati and St. Louis, she has come to truly appreciate and love the “rust belt chic” of her hometown. A graduate of Case Western Reserve University and a former therapist, Ms. Platt now uses her camera to “listen” to and record the lives and community around her. She believes that photography is at its’ best when used as a social and anthropological medium. Iconic Cleveland is a tribute to this hard-working, resilient town. It showcases Cleveland’s industrial might, cultural strength, and quirky, lovable “self”. The images may not always be pretty-but they are real. Perhaps one might call them Imago Veritas-each image possessing its’ own unique bouquet.
Mitzi Faye - FANTASY LANDSCAPES & OTHER IMAGINATIONS
Wednesday, March 4, 6:00PM
Collage is a form used by many artists at some time in their creative investigations. These alternative realities have no preconceived themes. I do not start with an idea or create them with some final image in mind. I use only the materials at hand: magazines, catalogues, advertisements that come in the mail. I tear and cut at random, and the relationships between the glossy bits of paper seem to develop naturally, intuitively. The compositions emerge almost on their own, surfacing from some unknown, unexplored, untapped place in me. It is as if they just happen, without my help or interference. I have never worked like this before and I have found it very liberating.

Tim Herron: Landscapes on Location
Wednesday, August 3, 6:00PM
With little art backround in High School I had my first serious art class at Akron University where although I frustrated my teacher in my art development I found my true calling. Since I've studied at Cooper School of Art (Cleveland school now defuct) and then CIA. Not having much ability upon entering Cooper School of Art, I concentrated on learning the figure thru life drawing and figure painting. My primary teachers were Lois Vance, Anthony Schepis, and Jose Cintron. Over the past two years I've concentrated on landscapes done on location. Although painting from a photo would allow me to be more technically exact it would not show the struggle and process of creating an original piece of art which provides the looser, creative style. Many of the landscapes in this show took 7 to 12 visits of two hours each to complete. I have large portraits at Mac's Back's along with different locations in Tremont like Sokolowski's University Inn and Lilly's Chocolates. Although I will work from photos, I prefer direct observation. "Landscapes on Location" opens August 3rd and closes on September 4th, 2016
Wednesday, September 7, 6:00PM
The theme of the show is "People in Motion" drawn from my archives spanning decades...going back to 1982 through the present. What ties the selection of imagery together even though there is no direct subject , time or similarity of environment is the approach to capturing the moment in motion. This style of photography is a favorite of mine...emulating the " Decisive Moment" approach made famous by Henri Cartier-Bresson, a famous Black & White French Street photographer who has influenced my style from my earliest days as a photographer. My personal work , however , spans many genres ...look forward to seeing upcoming collections defining my legacy photographs. To name a few themes: scenics & landscapes, travel, people & portraits, nature, social political movements & urban culture, local Cleveland neighborhoods....all with the impetus of capturing the "Decisive Moment." www.janetcentury.com

Dale Goode: Forty Years of Work
Wednesday, February 1, 6:00PM
This exhibit is a culmination of forty years of intensive trial and error, showcasing original drawings and prints.

Dale Goode’s work has been included in multiple exhibits and corporate collections in Cleveland and beyond, including Progressive Insurance, The Cleveland Urban League, The N.A.A.C.P., University Hospitals, The George Gund Foundation, and The Butler Institute of American Art.

Sawsan Alhaddad: The Gift of Light
Wednesday, March 1, 6:00PM
Most of Sawsan Alhaddad artwork is representational. The subject and the medium she uses vary from time to time but there is a thread that runs through a lot of the work. She is fascinated with the play of light on surfaces. It could be the skin of a child's cheek, which appears translucent in a certain light or a brown tree trunk that looks golden in the setting sun. The reﬂection of tall grasses in a pond, the changing hues in Lake Erie or the purple tints in a cloud all make her stop in her tracks. Even the way smog makes the air look orange is a revelation. While Sawsan is well aware of the scientific reasons for all these phenomena, she still finds them magical. Sawsan Alhaddad's challenge is to take what she sees and put it into a painting so others can share the magic.

Meredith Hahn: The Ambiance of Flow
Wednesday, September 6, 6:00PM
Meredith Hahn considers herself a figurative artist. The figure in its certain poses can tell what the soul has endured. For Meredith the figure is the most natural and poetic way to express emotions or experiences. Inspired by the beauty that surrounds us, she often gives natural elements a voice or mood by merging them with the human figure. Like dancers, a tree or a mountain can have a body and face to convey a small story of its life. At times dancers are the subjects of her work. At times her figures are more like cartoons with long sleeves and blank stares. These figures are meant to bring a playful and gentle approach to life’s difficult circumstances. Meredith's show opens with a reception on September 6th and runs through Sunday October 1st.
Sarah Willis, Karen Sandstrom, Loung Ung, Paula McLain, Sara Holbrook & Thrity Umrigar: Shared Stories
Wednesday, October 4, 6:00PM
Shared Stories: Six Writers on the Bonds of Art and Friendship
As artists, we want to explore stories. We write a poem about a dead father to discover how we might actually feel about loss and loneliness. We draw a picture of someone we love—or someone we don’t even know—because in the process we try to describe the emotions of just looking closely. We write a short story about a fictional character to try to better understand ourselves. We write a novel to tell a story about people other than ourselves. We make photographs not to tie down a moment, but to open it up.
Art doesn’t end with the first draft, the first words, the first lines, the first image. The beginning is a way in, a discovery that usually leads to something else, something larger, deeper, and, yes, fun—but much more work. Although we love what we do, it is never easy, and seldom finished. Because a sketch becomes a drawing with stronger lines, perhaps adding color, then it becomes a story, maybe a graphic novel or a picture book, or a conversation. And words written on a page, like these, become an idea about something we are trying to say, awkwardly at first, but with the belief that there is something to be explored, so we keep writing, then rewriting, then tear up the words, throw them away, saving only that phrase or moment or description that sings to us, that leads us forward into our characters’ hearts, which are a bit like ours, but different, unique and true. We want to understand our characters and what they might say about our own humanity, all our struggles and joy.
Alone and together, we chew on our art. We worry whether we have anything new or interesting to say for ourselves and for others. Art feels unfinished until someone else sees it, participates in our story.
Sharing stories; that’s what we’re all about. The six of us meet for food and drinks to share our stories. We tell each other about our parents and kids, our cats and dogs, a new knee or a new car, the time we waited tables at a dinky bar, gave up a corporate job to write poetry, or staked everything on an idea for a great novel. And we talk about the process of art, the creative moment that sets everything off; how unsure we are, how much we want to tear it all up, and do tear it up, and how we put it back together again. How we discover, through revision, something that seems to work. Then we toast each other, hug each other, and feel better because have each other.
So we are here now, together in this gallery, to share a bit of our stories, because that’s what do. We try to touch the world, and tell stories that say, “We are here. This is life. This is art. This is who we are.”

Wednesday, March 7, 6:00PM
Join our opening receptionto meet artist Kelly Stamblesky and celebrate her new exhibit, "Space and Time", on view in the Loganberry Books Annex Gallerythrough March 2018. Ever since she was a little girl, Kelly Stamblesky found herself drifting up and out into space. For those brief moments in time, she wouldn’t have a care in the world. Over the past year, with a renewed passion for astronomy and atmosphere, she realized while, in the past, this drifting in space had become an escape from extremely stressful situations, it also became the reentry point to her life as an artist. "Space and Time" is the culmination of recent work from early realistic studies of space and atmosphere to more recent exploration of our energetic place in the universe through space and time.
